Cold Air Intake?

What is the general consensus out there on cold air intakes for the TJ? They've made a noticable difference on the cars I've driven but I have never heard of a Jeep having one (I am 1 month in on my 02 Sport). For those of you that have them, do they make a difference? Is it worth it? I'm just looking for a little bit of a power boost and if mpg comes with it, then great.

What brands are recommended? Are they tricky to install or is it a pretty easy install even for a newbie? Any help is appreciated, thanks!

The general consensus is that our money is better spent elsewhere. Our 4.0L engines don't benefit from a lot of the bolt-ons.

A few searches will give you endless reading on the topic :-)

Your jeep is already engineered perfectly fine so you will not benefit from one.

CAI products are a great money maker for their manufacturers but a complete waste of $$$ for us TJ owners. The TJ's stock OE air intake system can already breathe well enough in stock form to provide more air than the engine can consume at wide-open throttle and redline rpms. That isn't true for all vehicles but it is for the TJ.
